Not sorryI'm not sorry I left,
Not sorry I'm gone.
But it was you
Who left me alone.
I tried to find you,
When you turned away.
But you no longer saw me,
Said "It's better this way."
You used to love me,
And I still love you.
I thought we were perfect,
But never was that true.
So don't get me wrong,
I played my part.
My life was shattered,
But you don't have a heart
So I will say it again,
Like a practiced verse.
For your heart to be broken,
You need one first.

Begging please stop
Picking the good out of me
Heaving on the floor
I need you
But you're killing me
I look in the mirror
My reflection beckons back
Who is she?
Someone falling through the cracks,
That you have made in her broken heart
Someone begging on her knees for you to shut up
Just a girl who wants to be beautiful
Just running from the edge
Into this world unknown
Finding nobody, but the ghost of you...

I still break down and cry,
At times I find myself,
Wanting to shout out for help,
I want to tell you that I love you, but I don't know,
I just don't know if what we had before is possible,
I hope that you'll always remember me,
And the good times that came to be,
Forget the arguments and the fights,
Step out of the shadows and walk into the light,
Maybe one day we'll talk again,
Forgive each other for our sins,
Until then I'll hold it all in,
Because sometimes it takes two to begin,
Honestly, I just want this month to be over,
As days go by I can feel my heart grow colder,
This would've been two years together,
I really thought that it would go on forever,
My phone reminded me, said it would never end,
And when I read that, it dug deep under my skin,
But never is the longest 5 letter word,
Because now your voice may never be heard.

That Sickly FeelingThe mind refuses to forgetThat Sickly Feeling3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The heart orders "Feel"
The explosive emotions begin
I hear your voice
Remorse and questions devour me again
My chest tightens
A physical ache seizes me
Tears of "Whys"
Tears of "Maybes"
Tears of "Buts"
Tears of "Hows"
Pain is initiated
Thoughts of denial envelop
Dreams are dreamt
Reality is fated
Things are no longer the same
Loses its previous course
The tears stop
The impassive shell emerges
Its time to sleep
The chest pains seize again
Toss and spin
Bed is no longer
A place of comfort
No one to share this pain
No one to give
What was dearly lost
The sun rises
It's another day
Everyone sees everything is alright
But who are they to see that?
A fight bravest is fought unaccompanied
ForgetYou remember nothing,Forget4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
How my love for you in the end,
Was taken apart in front of my eyes.
I thought you were once my friend,
But now I understand the truth in your lies.
You think of me with such spite,
Why are you the one to tell me,
What is wrong and what is right?
Your passion was blind but I made you see,
I remember everything.

Who thought a heart could break this quickly?
One glance, one stare
Did you even remember that I was there?
Your eyes locked on her face
Who thought a heart could crumble into decay?
There are so many things I want to say
So many things I want to scream in your face
So many tears I tried to hide
When I said I felt better, could you tell that I lied?
Could you tell that this is eating away at me?
The image won't go away
I try to remind myself of happiness and glee
But I remember when you were with her, and not me
Now you tell me you love me, I trust you with that
And I want you to know that I love you too
But seriously, I'm starting to feel insecure
I want you to know that I love you, and only you
But, please tell me, could you tell me that too?
A Love LostTwo lives intertwineA Love Lost3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
To become one as young love settles over the heart
I'm reminded of those long nights
Lying out in the heath under the stars
Now I am lost
Broken and sick without you
They all thought I should have gone right along with you
I still might
I won't eat
I can't sleep
My health is no longer a concern
It's after midnight I heard the bells chime
But I'm here at your grave
Slipping to my knees to leave you another flower
Before I lay down to sleep in a glade
Burrowed deep into my memories
As the fog settles around me like wisps of smoke
I'll rise at dawn
And sneak away before I'm caught
Leaving behind my love
And my guilt
But I'll be back tomorrow
To beg, once more, for forgiveness
Since it was my mistake
That left you in this cold lonely place
HollowSo many questions that I don't know the answer to,Hollow3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
But I feel like it's better that I don't know the truth,
For they would probably eat at my head,
Hollow it out from end to end,
Take control of my mind,
If those answers I were to find,
Root themselves deep within my skull,
And grow until they were full,
Full of contempt and disgust,
Disgust that I gave you my trust,
While it still may enter my thoughts,
It's better than being controlled like a robot,
A simple sentence could free my mind,
Or cause it all to collapse and unwind,
But I guess that's the gamble that I'll take,
Because lately I've grown to hate,
Hate the things that could be true,
Hearing stories about the things they'd do,
Lately my mind is all over the place,
Written all over my tired face,
I thought I was so strong,
But sometimes I'm just wrong,
I find myself losing my firm footing,
Due to my mind taking a thorough shooting,
Thoughts like bullets enter and exit,
Reminding me of how much I truly miss it,

You don't need me
That's why you left
I'm the one that needs you
I don't feel the need to change myself to make you want me again
If who I am isn't good enough, then maybe I'm better off alone
I wish things could go back to being like they were
Me and you
Fitting perfectly together
Letting everything disappear
I know I'm young
People tell me I'll find someone else
That I'll love again
But I don't know if I can be that open with anyone other than you
I'm too guarded
I have trouble seeing myself with anyone but
I know how to be strong and that I shouldn't let one relationship ruin me
But in all honesty
I am lost without you
What do you see?When you look into my eyesWhat do you see?3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
What do you see?
When you speak my name
When you pull me close
Are you really that broken?
So you no longer feel the love I give
The affection I show
Or the hope my eyes try to be
Come over here now
Tell me your truth
Show me those tears
And I'll tell you my truth
Show you my fears
I'll tell you about a girl
A girl who found hope in the most hopeless boy
Let me wipe the dripping sorrow of your cheeks
as I figure out what you need right now
Let me be the first person ever to be there for you
I'll tell you this story,
I'm sure you will appreciate it
the girl is cute and boy so strong
A happy ending too, just as it should be
Just as it will be
So come over here now
Crawl up into my arms
Let me listen to your heartbeat
so I can hear you be alive and healthy with me
and I'll let you listen to my calming voice
so you can relax and learn how to rely on someone
Then tell me, when you look into my eyes
what do you see?

Who are you to judge who I can and cannot be?
Who are you to decide what I should and should not see?
Who are you to say what I can and cannot do?
You're way too stuck up in your own selfish world to even tell that I love him and not you.
The pain you've caused me is sunk in way to deep
Too deep for me to even attempt to creep
Why won't you cease your endless attempts?
For you know very well that I cannot be content.
Why won't you leave me alone?
Why can't you leave my heart untorn?
Who are you?
Who are you to even dare to tell me what to do?

A true friend
That would be there
Thick and thin
And ever then
Try to do all they could do
To make me smile again
But I was dead wrong
I felt like an ugly bull frog
I was sad
When I got wind
That my very best friend
Had left me
For a new best friend
I wasn't warned
I wasn't told
I felt the world around me
Just turn bitter cold
I was out of the picture
For ever more
I was a forgotten
That got left on the floor.
Nights RainWe're standing in the rainNights Rain3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Lips connected like this is our last night
Pain intermingled with hope
Love threaded in our grasp
Your voice is just a raspy whisper against my ear
"I love you" my dear,
I love you more than words can display
And yet - everyday
I love you more and more and I must say
"I love you too", my breath just a tickle against your neck
Our bodies pressed close, where the seams end, I dont know...
we're standing in the rain
Staring up into the sky
And I'm no longer asking why
Why must days come to an end
and in this my mind sends,
my heart the messege, and I am sending it right to you
my dreams have become my reality
And suddenly my fairy tales have come true
for I have found them all in you.
Reaching Out.I'm reaching out with my handsReaching Out.3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Expecting you my love to embrace me,
But when I close my hand and see that you
Have not yet grasped on,
With every time I open my hand
To this painful empty feeling,
It tears this hole in my heart open
Letting it fill in with sadness,
And letting it become deeper.
So I let my nails grow out
Not expecting for anyone to latch on,
Continuing to grasp this desolate air
I find my self falling down in despair,
But then I see you reaching out
To grab my lonely hand out from the dark,
But alas I cut you,
I lost the sense of caring,
My nails and my heart,
Have become too sharp for this hand to hold on.
